This jacket was a great purchase. It allows a lot of air flow to keep cool with the liner out. It provides warmth and wind protection with the liner in. The liner did a great job of keeping me dry when I rode through the rain for about 5 hours on a trip. The only negative I have found is that the velcro straps at the elbow do not always stay connected.
I am very satisfied with the quality, fit, features, and style of this jacket. I can use this jacket for all the seasons that I ride my bike. I am from PA and this jacket suits all my needs. Will recommend it to all my friends.
I bought this jacket in black. It is well made. It has a removable slick inside liner that snaps at the wrist and the back of the neck to hold it in. That works well to keep the wind from getting to you...as well as the rain. Most of the jacket is a dense mesh material, and it has some sections of leather on the arms and shoulders and across the top of the chest. Pretty decent armoring in the elbows/shoulders and back. No neck coverage to speak of, so a balaclava or something like it is a suggested buy to go along with it if you will be riding in some cooler temps. I did slide-drop my bike in a wet parking lot with this jacket on and only sustained skin injuries on my hands, so it did its job well. Would def recommend. Grade-A jacket.
SOME OF THE SEAMS WERE COMING UNRAVELED AND THEY WERE NOT STITCHED STRAIGHT. THE VELCRO ON THE RIGHT ARM WAS PUT ON IMPROPERLY (VELCRO IS SUPPOSED TO HAVE HOOK ON ONE END AND LOOP ON THE OTHER SO THEY CAN ATTACH TO EACH OTHER) IT HAD LOOP ON BOTH ENDS. IT'S A GOOD LOOKING JACKET AND I WAS SAD TO SEE THE POOR WORKMANSHIP.
